South Africa: Notice of Strike Action Issued

press release

It is with sincere regret that Golden Arrow must alert our passengers to nationwide strike action which will affect the entire South African bus industry. Unfortunately, as a result of dead-locked wage negotiations, the unions’ party to the South African Road Passengers Bargaining Council (SARPBAC) have given notice of their intention to embark upon strike action on 18 April 2018.

Negotiations are still taking place and Golden Arrow remains hopeful that an agreement can still be reached.

If the strike action goes ahead, Golden Arrow will institute a Company-wide lock-out in order to ensure the safety of our passengers and staff for the duration of the strike. Services could therefore be suspended from 18 April 2018.

In the event of a strike, weekly and monthly clipcards that are valid when the strike commences will be extended when service resumes.

We will endeavour to keep our passengers informed of any new developments via all communication channels available to us.
